    What's your fretboard made of? Maple?

    How does that stack up against a rosewood fretboard? I've wondered for a while, and almost got a guitar with a finished maple fretboard on my last investment.

    Nice solo, by the way - I'm not much a fan of the music but it's obvious that you can play, and very well. I'm still envious of your ease with pinch harmonics.

    Still there but getting kinda huge in size, I guess: http://offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14477

    So I'll rename this Videos of you playing your instrument 2. Why? Because thread-merging is super-tedious and I honestly don't think it's a serious issue as it's not band promotion duplicate threads. Yarr.

    Not bad, son. Not bad.

    Actually, quite good. Note for note, including the pinch harmonic. Thumbs up. It's funny, I was never into Fender guitars when I was a guitar player, and now that I have been introduced to the wonder that is the J-Bass as a bass player, I sweat Fenders like none other. Hot.

    I used to dislike Fenders too. I always wanted a metal guitar with jagged edges and all that, and when I finally got a couple, I truly could appreciate how nice a Fender can sound.

    I think the neck is indeed maple. Though I can't be sure. It's a Hell of a lot nicer to play on, the only drawback being how thick it is (though that's more specific to my guitar than maple necks in general, of course).

    That's a maple neck. It's also a fabulous guitar. For my next buy I'll be getting one just like it, switching the pickups to my preference (though keeping them white...just for looks sake) and throwing on a black pick guard. Because an all black body with a maple neck, silver hardware, and white pickups on a strat is absolutely fucking gorgeous.

    Back to the point at hand. Very well played Dave, pinch harmonics become much trickier past around the 11th fret, good job pulling that off indeed. I also think your vibrato has improved, it wasn't bad before, but I think you nailed the vibrato better than Kirk does on that solo.

    I need to give my new guitar a better set-up, so until then, a midnight ballsed-up solo.

    Nice Whammy squeels, and playing in general there Sheepy, very good stuff!

    For something in a totally different vein, I discovered an awesome acoustic guitar arrangement of one of my favourite piano pieces, Happy Christmas Mr.Lawrence, by Ryuchi Sakamoto, so I learned it, and here are the results.

    Recording quality is very quiet, but it's a very satisfying peice to play with all those harmonics and tapping on an acoustic, it's in open D tuning for anyone thats interested.
